Ty Lawson is 5’11 and Ryan Anderson is 6’10. When Ryan ended up with the fearful task of having to guard Lawson I’m sure he was thinking “please bail me out and just dribble around and then take a bad fade away shot”. That didn’t happen. Lawson was smart enough to try to take Anderson off the dribble and not only was he quick enough to do it, he was so quick that he actually broke Anderson’s ankles….almost literally. Anderson is listed as day-to-day with a sprained ankle.
Lawson has a history of embarrassing big men too. Remember this dunk on 7’0 Mbenga. “This should be against the law, son!”
